I think this is an amazing resource to really get people thinking about themselves as sexual beings. It encompasses a wide range of sexual options and also gives good information about sex-related topics (such as communication). I especially appreciate that this book isn't about a specific disability or illness, and it recognizes the ways in which disabilities can be enabling during sex as well. I definatly reccomend this book to people with disabilities and without disabilities-- I guarentee you'll learn something new.

A breath of fresh air for the physically challenged/disabled. Yes, romance is possible. Yes, physical intimacy is possible - and not solely the province of the perfect. This book should be in the library of any professional care/health provider who works with the physically disabled/challenged.

This book is open and honest, and allows for people of all sexual orientations and gender identity. It is also quite interesting to read through.

I have never seen a book like this before! I am always looking for new information on how to cope with my disability. It is often assumed that people with disabilities are non-sexual or should be non-sexual... but this is a stupid idea and this is why the disabled community are so often abused sexually and in relationships. There need to be more books like this!

We are sexual beings. Some of us are dealing with disabilities that interfere with our sense of sensation and touch. We also are dealing with body image issues. This book encourages wholeness throughout the entire individualized process and offers tips to maintain or restore normalcy and romance to a relationship impacted by a disability.

Format: Paperback
As someone who has suffered from multiple disabilities for most of her life, it's nice to find a book that's actually makes me feel like I can be desirable.
Since sure there has been a rise in books that romanticize mental illness, but they don't tend to make me feel desirable or like a cute manic pixie girl. They tend to give me mixed emotions, since there are some that actually talk about the experience, and the possibility of stability. While many make it seem like LOVE WILL FIX ALL WOUNDS.
ya, naw.
This book, may not list out every possible disability ever, since that would not be a book, that would be a series, but it allows me to feel connected with others who may have felt the way I have. It allows me to feel like I am not just some enigma. I am human. And I can be sexual.
Though I have always defined myself as Asexual so, that makes it a little confusing, but in the end I know I do not lack all sexual feelings, and this book allowed me to see it more clearly.

In general it's a great book, but it does feel a bit redundant for me, who has had sex ed and read books and watched documentaries and shows that informed me of the many pieces that public school sex ed is too scared to touch on.

It is informative to some level in the personal level as if you talking to a friend or looking friendly advice or tips online. Yet, on the academic level the information is not really there. Everything in this book can be found easily online for free. I had a paper to do on sex and disability and I thought this book will help and all the info was good but not useful for my paper, and I realize I knew the information already from researching online. Yet , I think its ok to have a print copy for future use or to give as a gift to someone with a disability.

I bought this book because both my partner and I are disabled. It took me awhile to find the right book. The day I received it I glance through the book. Right away there was information that was useful.
